Human Machine Design Lab Team

Grégoire Cliquet
Laboratory Director and Doctor of Engineering (D.Engr.) from Arts et Métiers ParisTech

Course Leader of the Interactive Design undergraduate curriculum at L’École de design from 2004 to 2010, Grégoire Cliquet now runs the first Design Lab dedicated to Interactive Design formely known as READi, now Human Machine Design Lab. As a result of the management and faculty roles held over the years, he gradually built up his competency repertoire in Instructional Engineering with a focus on Creative Teaching and Innovation. In addition, he oversaw several projects with industrial partners, including Orange, Dassault Systèmes, Technicolor, etc.

This wide range of experiences in the field of Information and Communication Technologies led him to specialize in digital data-viewing techniques, whose “datatainment” angle caught his eye for its recreational and educational 3-D representations. Grégoire Cliquet has been a member of the “Adobe Education Leader Program” since 2012.
